RISD has just announced the release of HI-RES, a publication featuring student work that calls attention to key social and environmental issues.
“High-res” is a term used to describe an image that has been brought into greater clarity — higher resolution. How can we bring the future into HI RES? The works featured here demonstrate the enormous potential artists and designers have to radically re-envision the world around us. First presented as an exhibition and publication in spring 2007, HI RES highlights RISD student work that focuses on the opportunities and imperatives in our changing world. These are the images, objects, structures and experiences that will move the world towards a better, more sustainable future.
